President Trump was speaking to reporters outside the White House on Monday and someone asked him about criticism he has gotten from far left congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. His response was perfect.

Trump Waves Off Ocasio-Cortez Question: ‘Who Cares? Geez’
President Donald Trump quickly waved off a question about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Monday, waving his hand and saying “who cares.”
Ocasio-Cortez said there was “no question” Trump was a racist in a recent “60 Minutes” interview, and a reporter asked Trump about it as he took questions at the White House.
“Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez called you a racist,” a reporter said.
“Who did?” Trump asked.
“Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez,” the reporter said.
“Who cares? Geez,” Trump said, moving onto another question.

Trump answered questions from reporters for several minutes before leaving for New Orleans, where he will address a farmers’ convention.

Trump was exactly right to react this way. First of all, what he was discussing had absolutely nothing to do with her. Why would a reporter even bring her up at that time? Secondly, she is a freshman in Congress and hasn’t done anything yet. Why is the president expected to comment on any of her opinions? It’s ridiculous.
